A teenager who dreamed of being a football star and wanted to hone his skills in Brazil ended up in court after trying to obtain a visa with forged documents. Chan Yik-ho, 17, told Eastern Court he aspired to become a professional footballer and wanted to improve his skills in the South American country which has produced World Cup legends such as Pele and Rivaldo. To support his application for a visa, he created a forged employment certificate letter and a testimonial using his sister's computer at their home in Choi Hung Estate on July 10. Earlier that day Chan had found two blank sheets of letterhead printed for Jet Air Ltd - an air freight company - in a rubbish bin in Lok Fu. Magistrate Ian Candy was told that Chan made a rubber stamp and used it to mark both of the forged documents. He then handed the documents to the Brazilian Consulate, together with a photograph of himself and a visa application form. The rubber stamp was later disposed of. However, one week later the consulate found Chan was not an employee of the company and reported the matter to police. Chan was arrested the next day when he attended a pre-arranged interview at the consulate in Wan Chai. Chan pleaded guilty to a charge of forgery and was released on $1,000 bail. The case was adjourned to August 25 for sentencing and reports.
